AP was an obvious pick, way to go AP! Nice to see Mr. Felton going, kind of a surprise to me but nice to see as he has done so well at clearing the route for AP. A little torn this weekend as deep down inside I'm a Packer fan, but it sure would be sweet to see AP achieve the rushing record! Can my wish for both a Pack victory and an AP record-setting performance come true? Hmmmm.... Good luck to all this weekend. Skol to my Vikings fan friends, and extra kudos again to AP for dragging the Vikes organization into being a playoff contender!

There are a lot of kickers having a great year. I am so glad that Walsh got the votes to send him to Honolulu. His performance this year has been overshadowed by A.P. and that is a good thing in a way.

Awesome for the Pro Bowl guys, but why don't we have a offensive lineman in the Pro Bowll?? Is Jared Allen deserving of a Pro Bowl?? I think reputation helped and hurt the Vikes.

The probowl is just for the fans, like baseball's all-star game. Don't get to caught up in who is on the roster and who isn't. Alot of players get voted in because of their past play, and alot of players don't get voted in because they play in a smaller market, or there is a big name at their position. I personally stopped watching the game, because it was a joke. The players go because they can bring their families to hawaii for the week. I think that it really is a bigger deal to the younger players. I would be more interested in seeing an all rookie pro-bowl. As for the Vikes, did Allen have a pro-bowl year? Not really. Did rookies Kalil, and Smith, deserve to be there? Maybe. Felton, goes where Peterson goes. Unless your running back plays strictly in a single back offense, you have a FB that is a high number catch guy, the FB who blocks for the leading rusher, should get in the probowl. GO VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Almost forgot about the LB who is leading the league in tackles. Good job all season long Chad. You should have made the squad. Its only an all-star game

Great to see some Vikes make that squad but that game should not be played. It's become some lesser version of tackle football in general and for good reason. It's a meaningless game.

Every year I wait for this game to happen.... and every year I watch about two minutes of it and turn the channel. At least baseball made their all star classic worth winning. Yawn.

Foster bought Segways for his offensive linemen? Is it just me, or is that a pretty crappy gift idea? I think Foster's trying to send a not-so-nice message to them: you guys are lazy. Because only a lazy person (who doesn't mind looking like an idiot) would use a Segway.

purplewv - Good to see someone else wondering why the #2 leader in tackles missed the Pro Bowl. Allen is a great player, but not having a great season. Greenway is, and should've been in for sure; it's a travesty more people don't recognize how much he contributes to the Vikes D.
